The trouble with getting old? Things start to fail. Tori has been back on track with her eating and energy but even before then we noticed she was having vision problems.
Mostly it had to do with darkness and stairs. At our house you have to go down stairs to go outside. The light at the top tends to burn out. I noticed that Tori would wait until I went down the stairs and turned on the light at the bottom before coming down. If for some reason I forgot or thought it was light enough she would start coming down and inevitably trip. There are two stair leading into the garage and this is the same situation. She has a lot more issues going down stairs than up in the dark.
Secondly, we have guest in and out of our house all the time. Used to be Tori would bark but as soon as the person appeared at the top of the stairs she stopped. Now guests comment that she keeps barking at them until they walk up close to her. It’s as though she can’t clearly tell who they are until they are close.
Of course Tori isn’t letting any of this get her down and we are keeping an eye (hahahaha) on it. Nothing much can be done as it is age related. It just makes us call her a grumpy old lady more often
